Broken


Every day in my life is a struggle.
Trying to break free,
Get away from the
Intimidating looks and menacing faces.

In middle school I was told
I would never be beautiful,
That I was just another freak.
I let those words shape me.

Now the school halls scare me.
When I'm around people
I put my guard up, staying quiet because
I'm afraid to let others know me.

All around me people succeed,
And I can't even open up.
Afraid of what they might say about me.
I wish I was stronger.

Now I try to just shut it out,
But I'm broken.
I want to hide it but
How do you hide something so big
Behind a girl so small?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem after we started the poetry unit in my Sophomore English class. I had been feeling down and people were picking on me so I just put me feelings on paper and then I typed it up.

    Your poem touched me.
    'I want to hide it but
    How do you hide something so big
    Behind a girl so small? ' - Please do not hide. Just come out of your shell and see how large the world is! Ignore your critics. (Report) Reply
